Mellanox Technologies: Driving Quality, Security and Compliance

Black Duck Software Press Releases - Tue, 05/12/2015 - 14:30
Webinar

As open source software (OSS) continues to work its way rapidly through the IT world, organizations’ use of OSS has ongoing potential to introduce compliance challenges and security vulnerabilities into critical applications. Organizations integrating OSS look to many sources for code. Some sources of OSS are more reliable than others, and determining code origin can be difficult. As Gartner analyst Mark Driver notes, “IT organizations cannot ignore the influence and presence of OSS in their technology road maps (planned or unplanned). Those that do so place themselves at risk for technical and legal nightmare scenarios, and/or miss out on significant competitive benefits.”

Join Alon Hilu, IP Counsel for Mellanox Technologies and Bill Weinberg, Director of OSS Strategy at Black Duck as they discuss the Mellanox approach to Open Source Logistics

  • Best practices for selecting and ingesting OSS for integration into products and distribution to customers and partners
  • How to build a scalable OSS approval workflow system that streamlines and automates the selection and approval processes
  • Addressing security vulnerabilities detected in OSS and working to deliver and maintain secure products

GPL and Software Licensing Issues – Lessons from the Versata Lawsuit

Black Duck Software Press Releases - Thu, 04/02/2015 - 16:30
Webinar

Over half of the more than one million open source projects available on the internet use GPL licenses. The GNU General Public License Version 2 (GPL-2.0) continues to be the most widely used and most important license for free and open source software. Many companies confidently integrate valuable software made available under this license into their development environments and internal operations, as well as their outbound products and services.  The conditions in the license must be met, however, when distributing code made available under this or any license. Despite its importance, GPL-2.0 has been the subject of very few court decisions, and few of the most important terms of the GPL-2.0 have been interpreted by courts.

This quiet period came to a close recently due to the five interrelated cases arising from a dispute between Versata Software, Inc. ("Versata") (its parent company, Trilogy Development Corporation, is also involved, but Versata is taking the lead) and Ameriprise Financial, Inc. ("Ameriprise"). The courts in two separate cases issued decisions on November 25.

Join this webinar presented by Black Duck Software in which Mark Radcliffe, partner at DLA Piper and General Counsel for the Open Source Initiative (OSI), will review the five cases arising from these allegations and important terms of the GPL-2.0 and Karen Copenhaver, partner at Choate Hall & Stewart and Counsel for the Linux Foundation, for a Q&A on open source license litigation.
